Translations for Flarum are managed by language packs, which are simple extensions providing translations strings. Usually installing language pack is enough – your forum instance should be available in your favorite language. But what if you don’t like some translations? Or language pack does not support one of used extensions? Creating your own language pack just for your forum may be an overkill, especially if you don’t want to translate extensions and just want to see untranslated description instead of ugly placeholders.
Flarum is a new interesting forum engine written in PHP. Well… is not really new, first beta release was almost 4 years ago, so it is with us for some time, but so far there was no stable release and project is still in beta stage. Although it already works pretty well and there are some big production deployments, there is still no backward compatibility promise and officially you should not use Flarum on production. Of course some people (like me) will ignore this warning and use this engine on production forums. I’ve used this engine for GG.deals forum and for some small local community forum. These are quite different cases, and I’d like to share my experience of using Flarum for these two forums.
